    Daughter found this deal on Craigslist. Its a 15 inch. How can sellers sell this so cheap? I'm wary. They said they would include final cut pro x. Am I protected if I use Paypal? Its out of state but they included photo of serial numbers and it isn't said to be stolen and eligible for apple care.
    They have sent me an invoice and also phone number. Too good to be true? Thanks

    Haha, Thanks for your reply. Its the pressure from an adorable 15 yr old daughter making me ask! :) I guess it is the part about paying with paypal that made me think there might be some security in the transaction.

    That is a $2,000 computer. No way is that not stolen or a scam. I would stay away.

    Yeah, I'm going to pass. Did I mention the invoice they sent had a Euro dollar sign? Thanks for the advise.
